Travel Destinations to Escape the Cold

During a winter snowstorm, nothing sounds better than escaping to the warm sands of a remote island. Many tourists do, in fact, escape the cold. With many exotic locations to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which island destination is best.

Forbes.com has released its list of 11 top island resorts for those seeking an escape from the cold in 2017. The list includes destinations in Fiji, the Maldives, the Bahamas, New Zealand, Florida, and more. One particularly exotic recommendation is Vanuatu’s Ratua Private Island. The island can only host 35 guests, but those guests are treated to oceanfront villas and fresh local food. Price was clearly not a factor in the Forbes rankings.

Mexican destinations are notably absent from the Forbes list. Isla Mujeres near Cancun, for example, is a warm and exotic island destination that is also fairly affordable. It features stunning turquoise water, beautiful beaches, and excellent snorkeling.

Travelers seeking to escape cold weather probably do not, for the most part, care whether they are on an island, as long as they are somewhere warm with a beach. Costa Rica, for example, is an excellent destination for tourists who want to lounge on a warm beach while enjoying fresh local food. In Central and South America, there are many mainland alternatives to the Forbes island list.

While the Forbes list is not perfect, though, it does provide some excellent destination ideas. There are some beautiful island locations in the world, and spending a few days in an over-the-water hut in the Maldives or on a private island would constitute an amazing winter vacation.
